Get Rid of Your Excess Baggage Here

Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come. ~ Jeremiah 33:3

Are you sick and tired of hauling around all those suitcases loaded with all your troubles?  Have you ever thought what your life could be like if there was a way to put these bags inside a spaceship and launch them into outer space?

Imagine private enterprise has figured out a way to accept unlimited baggage.  You show up at the ticket counter to drop them off.  Inside the bags are all your letdowns, hangups and troubles.  They include past due bills, broken relationships, layoff notices, and a few addictions, like alcohol and drugs.

You watch as the bags disappear on the conveyor belt.  The agent stamps your ticket "one way" and you smile as you walk to the viewing room where this spaceship named "Redeemer" is getting ready for launch.

There is only one pilot on this ship loaded up with suitcases from all over the world.  The private sector miniaturization technology works like a charm and each bag is shrunk to the size of your wallet.  You watch in amazement as the cargo bay is loaded with thousands of bags.

It's standing room only in the viewing center and the major news networks are all there to broadcast this first ever launch.  The pilot of the "Redeemer" is cheered wildly as he waves one last time before boarding the spaceship.

"This is one small step for man and one giant step for mankind," J.C. says as he takes the first step on board the "Redeemer."

You watch as all your past troubles are launched into outer space.  For the first time in your life, you feel like the fifty pounds of concrete on top of your shoulders are gone and you sense a new life is ahead.

Once outside the earth's atmosphere, J.C. opens the cargo doors and all the bags float away.  Each night, as these bags re-enter the atmosphere, they turn into falling stars that flash across the night sky.

People all over the world eagerly await the return of the Redeemer so they can turn over all their excess bags to J.C. and start their lives over again.

The spaceship in this story may be fictional, however, there is someone waiting for you to release all your troubles to Him.  Jesus Christ is the Redeemer.  His Father sent Him to take away all your sins.  All you need to do is ask and He will do the rest.  It's as good as watching all your troubles launch into outer space.  Why not give it a try today?  Just close your eyes and invite Him into your heart.
